Gum / Gingival Treatment
In gum treatments performed with laser, all foreign materials and tissues around the tooth are cleaned without interventional surgical procedures. The natural state of tissue biology is provided. The laser stimulates coagulation of the blood that fills the cavity of the angularly dissolving bone around the tooth and the body is enabled to form bone by transforming the clot. Thus, there is no need to perform advanced surgical procedures and there is no need to use foreign materials such as bone dust from the outside.
Frenulum, muscle tissues can cause gum recessions by limiting aesthetic procedures. However, it can even cause gaps between teeth. The process of releasing these muscle tissues is called frenectomy. In today’s laser technology, the frenectomy procedure can be easily performed without bleeding in a short time with maximum patient comfort.
Gingival Bleeding During Pregnancy: Causes and Treatment
Gingivitis is an oral disorder that leads to inflammation, swelling and redness in the gums. It will often lead to gingival bleeding. The curious thing about this disorder is that it often manifests in pregnant women and goes away after birth. Pregnancy causes a surge of hormones in women, making them much more prone to gingival bleeding. Thus, gingival bleeding and pregnancy are super common. Gingivitis is a common disease that may occur when plaque forms on your teeth. Sometimes plaque will accumulate on your gums, making them inflamed and tender.
A gingival recession occurs when the gum tissue pulls away from the teeth and the teeth start displaying more and more of their roots. The core concern is that as the teeth start pulling away, there may be gaps where a bacterial attack might be much easier. Gingival recession can lead to greater sensitivity. It can also cause teeth to undergo much more damage. There are many causes for gingival recession and just as many treatments for this oral disease. There are specific reasons the gingival recession is a cause for alarm. However, taking care of your teeth in time can quickly reverse the gingival recession.
Scaling And Root Planning
Scaling and rooting planning are common dental procedures that help prevent the spread of bacteria. They are also referred to as deep cleaning procedures in dentistry.
Scaling is a procedure in which the dentist removes stubborn tartar or plaque from your gums. They do the scrapping both under and above your gum line. After the scaling procedure is completed, the dentist then begins root planning.
Root planning is a dental procedure to remove cemented and any remaining embedded calculus from the roots. It helps create a smooth, firm surface. Moreover, it works to soothe the tooth root after scaling, allowing the gums to reattach to your teeth. Smoot tooth roots prevent bacteria and tartar from further damaging your teeth and gums.
Pink (Gingival) Aesthetic
Smile design techniques are in-demand and rightfully so because they provide an authentic oral and dental aesthetic that looks natural but better. However, technically, any process done to achieve a specific look for the gum and help them appear symmetrical or per the patient’s expectations is called gingivoplasty. However, a less medial and everyday term for this process is “pink aesthetics”. The term resonates with the color of the gums and differentiates the procedure with other dental aesthetic treatments and smile design options that are specific to teeth, jaw or other parts of the oral and mouth structure.
Often people think that maybe too much of their gums are showing when they smile. People also complain if they find their gums are asymmetrical and take away from the beauty of their overall smile. We suggest they go for the pink (gingival) aesthetic treatment option for a better smile design. The process starts with your dental aesthetician taking a necessary image of your teeth and gums using intraoral camera technology. Next, they apply software-generated compatible gums and smile designs over your lips and teeth. Experts recommend that aesthetic treatments like smile design achieve a faster biological healing process.
There is little to no bleeding or requirement for anesthesia in pink aesthetics, making it a highly convenient option for patients. As all of this is done without requiring unpleasant procedures, surgeries or operations, the patient might not even need as little as a painkiller. In a week’s time, you would have your perfect smile as it should have been all along.
Dental treatments that are long-lasting and have a high success rate with patients are the most demanded and popular ones in the dental industry. One such treatment option is known as Depigmentation – as the name suggests, it works for the pigment of your teeth.
Basically, the color of the teeth and their gum and tissue structure are just as crucial for creating a harmonious and symmetrical alignment of your teeth, conjoined with your lips. Depigmentation targets all these features for a better aesthetic appeal. Believe it or not, a healthy gum set is pink in color and the texture resembles an orange peel. Hence, if you have wrinkled, dark purplish gums, chances are a depigmentation treatment is an ideal option to bring them back to their original, healthy color and aesthetic.
Usually, the YAG laser is used to achieve this color and textural consistency. People find the discoloration disturbing and it looks like your gums are bruised. So, using the laser to bring the healthy color back works swiftly and ideally for them. Sometimes the procedure would require regional anesthesia. However, most times, your dental expert would guide you rightfully on how they shall proceed. In case your skin and gum color are inherently dark then it is nothing to worry about.
